Erica-

I signed up using the form provided, but did not get the confirmation email. I have visually checked all of my mailboxes, as well as digitally searched for the confirmation, but no joy.

I'm assuming that the board's outbound mail is configured for immediate sending, rather than aggregating outbound mail for sending at scheduled intervals. It's been about an hour since I registered. I'm very new to Flourish, so it's also possible that there is some profile setting that is impacting the situation.

Also, does the 4 part verification requirement for posting ever go away?

Thanks for your help!
Dan Brooks

Hi Dan,
Thank you for checking in. Your sign up did come through! So I'm wondering why some of the confirmations are getting delivered and others are not.  :(

Yes - you'll be happy to know the questions go away after the first couple of posts.  ;D

I'm excited you've joined our exchange!

It's possible that the forum software is configured to send outbound mail at certain times of the day. I'm not sure why the registration form would trigger a different process than any other notification or automatic reply. I'm getting the topic reply notifications pretty much immediately, but no sign of the registration confirmation.

It's also possible that the problem isn't on your end. You should check the email addresses that failed to see if they are all on the same domain, like yahoo.com or hotmail.com. The mail servers may consider emails from theflourishforum.com to be spam and are blocking and deleting or bouncing the messages.

Since I'm getting the topic reply notifications, we know that Yahoo is not blocking your domain, but it might still block some specific sending email addresses. Is the confirmation message configured to use the usual [email protected] for the "sender" and "reply to" email headers?

Erica, Iíve found something! I found my confirmation email and the sender seems to be myself. As my mail is gmail, that automatically is considered superspam and it does not get through when you use an app or a mail client software. Until this one, those mails come sent in your name, so this one is a new one! Hope that helps!

Hi Erica, I signed up for the Steampunk exchange twice, because I first made it from the cell phone and I do not know if it was made effective :P. The second one I have done from the computer.
Sorry for the inconvenience :(
Cordially  :)

Thanks @caltain Dan. The sign up confirmations are sent out differently than traditional forum mail. They are sent via an auto confirmation using the database created on the actual wordpress website (not the forum). @Inked botanicals Alba helped me solve it! The form uses the email you input as the "from" because you are basically sending the confirmation from yourself. However, I will change that so it comes from my wordpress admin email.  Thank you for helping me solve this!

The lists have been sent out. Please check your mailboxes and let me know if you did not receive it and think you signed up. I have extended the postmark deadline by two days because of the delay in getting the lists out.

I am super excited for this one and have been brainstorming my ideas for days!  ;D

Sorry to be a pain, but I've got no sign of the list either. I'm not sure what is going on at this point. Regardless, I need my list, please...

Hi,
So sorry about this! Two members (both with the same email provider) did not get their lists. I have resent them. Please PM me if you did not receive it again.
Thanks!
